Bringing in clear, pure-bred cuts for this week’s Lo-Fi Sundays is CPY. With banging beats out of the United States, CPY brings the smooth vision of complimentary samples and volume-conscious mixing to the lo-fi table. His productions exude a particularly familiar dust that stirs in the mind images of mid-November dusk strolls and the scent of a town gone sleepy.
CPY infuses his tracks with lush instrumental layers and the unmistakable touch of beat-pad fundamentalism. Every song utilizes minimal audio for maximum space, allowing choice samples to sing clearly through the mix while maintaining a full palette. Rhythmically, anything from 70-90 bpm exists in the CPY catalog, and each direction he takes has a light musical saunter. The vibe stays vivacious with a fellow like CPY, no matter the form or content of the song in question.
CPY’s discography stretches back over a year, with nearly 100 tracks to date. With neither his frequency nor quality of output in question, CPY is an unsung gem in the lo-fi sphere. Keep a close eye on this taciturn crate digger, as he’s surely cooking up new content as we speak.
